Traditional female pottery from North Morocco (Rif). The small animal sculpture is handcrafted according to ancestral primitive techniques.

Those animals made of terra cotta are genuine tribal pieces of art. Geometric or abstract patterns embellish the sculptures. Simultaneous art and craft, each primitive African pottery is one-of-a-kind.

Warm and earth shades, the decorations are tone-on-tone.

Women solely craft the modeled potteries. They usually make functional objects for rural life (pots and vessels used to carry water, drink, or preserve food). Berber women also build animal potteries to delight children.

Why I love them:

These small ethnic statues have a crazy charm and a retro look. They add an unusual and personalized feeling to your decoration.

Dimensions : 7x4x3 in — 18x11xh8 cm

Discover the proud horse, the strong buffalo, and the funny elephant.

The animal sculptures are handmade and are likely to have some imperfections that guarantee their authenticity.
